Assisted registration has been developed so patients can register for an eHealth record with support and guidance from those healthcare provider organisations involved in their care and whose guidance they trust.
Once your organisation is registered with the eHealth record system, assisted registration is a way for you to help your patients register for an eHealth record at the point of care.
You can assist patients to register by asserting the patient's identity and then submitting their details to the eHealth record system using the purpose-built software that is available.
If successful, the patient will be registered almost immediately and you can upload clinical information to their record straight away.
To offer assisted registration your organisation must have a Healthcare Provider Identifier - Organisation (HPI-O) and be registered to participate in the eHealth record system.
You can offer assisted registration to a person who is 14 years or older. You cannot offer assisted registration to any adult who does not have capacity or who is acting on behalf of an adult in their care.
